Hot Shot: New Beyonce ‘Rise’ Promo Revealed

beyonce rise 2014 Hot Shot: New Beyonce Rise Promo Revealed

Cop a gander of Beyonce!

The chart-topping megastar glimmers gold in this freshly unwrapped promo for her new fragrance ‘Rise’.

Set to arrive worldwide next month, the scent will reportedly be backed by a major promotional campaign – one that includes a TV commercial shot by famed director (and frequent King B collaborator) Jake Nava.

The pair’s lengthy list of past collaborations include last year’s Pepsi Commercial, the iconic clip for 2008′s ‘Single Ladies’, and more recently ‘Partition’ from the 32-year’s self-titled visual album. As such, fans are clearly in for a treat.

By no means “just another celebrity fragrance”, Bey’s foray into the world of perfume branding has been wildly successful.

‘Heat’, the star’s first effort, broke a Macy’s sales record with $75,000 in sales in one day. While the singer’s fragrance business has generated $400 million in retail sales. And with WWD reporting that industry insiders estimate ‘Rise’ could hit $25 million in its first year, the future certainly smells divine for the diva’s lucrative side-hustle.

Needless to say, that Beyonce reign just won’t let up!

Sadly credible acts are a hard find on most talent shows, yet The X Factor UK produced just that with soulful maven Misha B.

Mentored by Kelly Rowland on the show’s 2011 series, the 21-year-old would go on to achieve both critical and commercial success with the string of singles she released – including nabbing a top 10 with the MNEK produced ‘Home Run’.

However, a parent album never followed and things – quite literally – went silent. Until now.

Taking to Facebook today, the Mancunian revealed that she’s readying a mixtape – which she previewed in video form. Check it out below…
